Q.damage to young avocado leaves

Zone Tampa, Florida, 33625 | Anonymous added on June 1, 2018 | Answered

I have a young avocado tree that is about 3 to 4 months old and about 12 inches tall, and currently in a 10 1/2 pot. It is kept outside in the pool area that is totally screened in and can get lots of sun.
Recently I have noticed tiny pin holes in a few of the leaves and tiny white critters that can barely be seen that fly away when a hand is approaching or if I attempt to wipe them off. They are white, round and as tiny as the pointed tip of a pin and can barely be seen. I think they are responsible for eating the tiny round holes in the leaves. Can you tell what they are and how to get rid of then?

Thank You
